6:03 pm
wrong again. bottom line, this is the so- called bottom line of the so- called rapture and the man spreading that message is nowhere to be found. >> all right. it begins there. robert lyles, thank you. so what about the believers? one sonoma county man is convinced the world will end tomorrow and don knapp reports his neighbors are frightened about what this man plans to do. don? >> he says he loves his birds, his two cats and even the neighbor cat neero. loves them so much he will kill them to spare them the pain of judgment day. >> i plan to put my babies to sleep when the earthquake hits denver.

end. how about that? >> reporter: is tinker serious? the staff at a nearby vetrinary clinic think so. he came by looking for drugs to kill his animals. >> it is unethical about what we do at the animal hospital and we wouldn't put an animal to sleep that wasn't suffering in any way and he said that isn't fair to me because the animals are going to be dying. i said i was sorry. >> reporter: another going further. the sergeant says at this point there is not much he can do. >> well, i'm just curious and just try to figure out how to resolve the issue because it is his belief it is going to happen on the 21st. >> sonoma county animal control also has offered care but says that as long as the killing is humane and by the owner there is not much they can do. now it is up to bill tinker who seems determined. >> if my animals are going to be killed by the flood -- i mean by the earthquake or the earth wave that is going to come around the world, why
6:06 pm
would i want to keep them alive and allow them to be hurt. >> reporter: new developments in the past few minutes. while we were standing here two officers from animal control have arrived walking up to the front of mr. tinker's house. one of the officers is holding the cat. they are probably talking to him about not killing his animals. talking to him about their concerns about keeping these animals alive. at this point we don't know how this will go down because animal control has not in the previous few days decided that it was legal for them to intervene since the intent was to kill the animals humanely. we will bring you those developments as they happen. back to you. >> unfortunately mr. tinker is probably not alone in his thinking. don knapp, thank you. the world continues to turn
